Jordan Mailata split a golf ball in half on what I assume was a 400+ yard drive
Eagles LT Jordan Mailata (aka the Aussie Adonis) is well-known for his feats of strength on the football field. The 6’8″ 350lb former rugby player puts NFL defensive linemen on their asses weekly. However, his athleticism reaches far beyond the gridiron to the golf links, as he showed during a recent trip to a golf simulator with Landon Dickerson.
Needless to say, he knocked the absolute piss out of the ball, hitting the thing so damn hard it split in half. For those who aren’t familiar with golf, that isn’t really supposed to happen. Ever.
Dickerson caught the aftermath of Mailata’s brutal assault on the golf ball:
Jesus Christ. That’s quite honestly a bit terrifying.
I can’t help but see that ball split in half and wonder what Mailata would be capable of if he hit someone in the head with a golf club. I know that’s a morbid thought, but I’m already used to seeing him physically abuse grown men without the use of a weapon. Doesn’t feel like too big of a leap.
I mean just look at the damage:
In that same vein, I disagree with Dickerson saying he “can’t take him anywhere.” If I had a buddy that’s built like a brick shithouse and can split golf balls in half, I wouldn’t leave the house without him. But that’s just one piece of the story.
From a golf perspective, I’d love to get out on the links with Mailata. I can hit the ball a decent distance, but it’d be unreal seeing him crank one 400 yards on the fly. Definitely not something I saw playing DIII golf in the NESCAC.
Plus, I’m sure we’d enjoy our fair share of ice-cold beverages, which is more akin to the Colby golf team’s practice regimen. Well, mine, at least.
Regardless, I hope once we launch The Liberty Line Invitational – a tournament I just now made up – Mailata will be available to play. If he splits a ball in half during his 18 hole round, the Pew Charitable Trust will donate a million dollars to the charity of his choice.
None of that’s legally binding, but let’s make it happen!
